Freeze-dried tibial nerve grafts were anastomosed to either the proximal stump or the distal stump of severed tibial nerves in adult inbred Fischer rats. In the case of grafts attached to the proximal stump the tibial nerve was ligated three times, the most distal ligature from the spinal cord being 1 cm from the site of anastomosis. In both types of experiment Schwann cells were, therefore, free to enter the initially acellular grafts without accompanying axons. The grafts were examined 17… CONTINUE READING
